Minter Stops AMR @ Monroe City Council

Monroe civic activist Byrd Minter won a big victory at the Monroe City Council last night and halted the proposed Automated Meter Reading (AMR) project. Minter had said it was a waste of money and would likely result in higher water rates for citizens, nor would it save the city any money.

See The (Monroe) News-Star story.

The Monroe City Council, in a lengthy meeting Tuesday, chose to bypass discussion in rejecting all proposals for an automated water meter system and defeated an ordinance to study the way the city figures its water bills.

The council voted down an ordinance to allow a consulting firm to conduct a study on water and sewer rates.

    My dream retirement is to never have to deal when using the cold of winter or heat of summer. An A-Frame in Vermont as well as a cottage by the sea near Savannah.
